Parents of college-bound students will appreciate any opportunity to soften the blow of tuition, which makes this announcement timely and welcome.
The Muskego Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism is now accepting applications for its Youth Volunteer Scholarship. The award of $1000 is given to one area student, and all entries must be post marked by January 4, 2013.
